The Davis tee by Pam Allen is another great summer top.  It's knit in Quince and Co. Kestrel, a Belgium-grown organic linen spun in a ribbon structure. Kestrel knits up quickly at 3½ to 4 stitches to the inch. Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. But we think the best thing about it is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, woven or knitted, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.

Stockinette stitch pairs so beautifully with Kestrel that you don’t really need to do much else with it. Edges don’t roll and the drape is to die for. The Davis tee is wider than most with very fitted sleeves to balance its boxy shape. For detail, an exposed shoulder seam.
